Abstract

Trees are living elements interspersed throughout our cities, and are considered by economists to be «fixed assets». Though they form part of our cities they do not have a set price as normally understood and calculated within the framework of a perfectly competitive market. The main aim of this article was to compare the main methods developed in the USA (North American) and Europe (Finnish, Swiss, French and Capitalisation methods) for determining the monetary value of urban trees in the town of Santiago del Estero, northeastern Argentina. The values of eight specimens of the most abundant species in the city (Brachychiton populneum, Citrus auriantum, Grevillea robusta, Jacaranda mimosifolia, Sapindus saponaria, Tabebuia impetiginosa, Thevetia peruviana, and Tipuana tipu) were calculated using all five methods mentioned above and the mean values returned compared by ANOVA. The results suggest a methodology combining both capitalisation and parametric indices might be the most useful way of determining the value of city trees
